Nearby blast prompts Rusal to halt Achinsk alumina plant in Russia

United Co. Rusal PLC halted work and evacuated all but essential staff at its Achinsk alumina plant in Russia following a fire in a nearby military base, Reuters reported Aug. 5.

Achinsk is the country's largest alumina refinery with an annual capacity of 1.1 million tonnes.

Authorities are evacuating about 11,000 people in the city of Achinsk in Russia’s Krasnoyarsk Region after a fire in an arms depot caused ammunition to explode, Russian News Agency TASS reported.
